’90 Day Fiancé’: Tim Malcolm ‘Forgives’ Dean Hashim on Instagram
The drama between 90 Day Fiancé castmates Tim Malcolm and Dean Hashim has been playing out for months now. Tim pushed back against Dean’s comments about him both on and off the spinoff 90 Day Fiancé: Pillow Talk. When Dean and his brother Tarik Myers no longer appeared on Pillow Talk and were suddenly “replaced” by Tim and his ex-girlfriend Veronica, many fans believed Dean and Tarik were fired because of Tim.
But as of the end of 2019, it looks like Tim and Dean have worked out their differences and hope to go forward in peace. They buddied up on Instagram and seemed to make amends.
Tim and Dean had beef after Dean’s comments on Tim’s gender and sexuality
The drama between Tim and Dean started when Dean and Tarik watched Tim’s relationship with his ex Jeniffer Tarazona played out on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days. On Pillow Talk and a separate podcast with Domenick Nati, Dean reportedly made comments about Tim’s behavior and appearance and claimed he might be a trans man or gay. Many found the comments offensive, including Tim.
At the time, Dean called Tim “feminine,” criticized the way he crossed his legs and his other mannerisms, and joked that he might have transitioned from female to male. Afterward, when Tim and Veronica began appearing on Pillow Talk, both Dean and fans believed Tim was the reason.
On Instagram, Tim told Dean to stop “running his mouth” and added that he’d actually asked for him not to be fired from 90 Day Fiancé.
He said in a live video at the time, “You know what, f*ckin’ Dean, here’s the truth. The powers that be — you know because you know what we have the same f*cking boss at the end of the day — called me when you ran your f*cking mouth and made transphobic comments. And I begged them not to fire your a**. F*ck your goddamn stupid apology that you’re so butthurt about that I didn’t respond — I took the high f*cking road and didn’t respond to you.”
The two ‘90 Day Fiancé’ cast members made amends on social media
At the end of 2019, Tim extended a public olive branch to Dean.
In an Instagram post, the 90 Day Fiancé star wrote, “For the record.. I forgive you @deanhashim90 …. I believe in an old saying that my favorite boss I ever had taught me. ‘Fix it and move on.’ Life is too short to spend it angry or resentful. If you want to clean your soul for 2020… forgive someone and move on.”
He added, “We are all so comfortable to say mean things to each other on social media. Do you want to show how tough you really are? Forgive your enemies publicly and tag it #Forgivefor2020 … you will feel better I promise you! Don’t drag negativity into a new year.”
Dean seemed to accept Tim’s peace offering, writing in the comments, “Alright Alright Lil Felllaaaa😊 Much Love man— TIM IS MY HOMEBOY NOW-ANYONE MESS WITH HIM THEY GOTTA MESS WITH ME!🤣💯 Also Dude!!..Now I need my 24 karat blinged out 9 millimeter!! Lol Peace Y’all.. HAPPY NEW YEAR!” To a fan, Dean called the “ordeal” a “learning experience.”
Tim claimed Dean was never fired from ‘Pillow Talk’
Contrary to popular belief (and Dean’s claims), Tim has asserted time and time again that he didn’t have anything to do with Dean’s removal from 90 Day Fiancé: Pillow Talk. Under his acceptance of Dean’s apology, Tim wrote to a fan, “He didn’t get fired…at least not to my knowledge and even if he did it had nothing to do with me.”
Dean’s brother Tarik appeared to agree, recently posting comments that indicated their disappearance from the show had nothing to do with their remarks about Tim.
He and Dean aren’t even on speaking terms, he said, writing on Instagram under a selfie with his fiancee Hazel: “When family lies on you, smiles in ya face but stabs you in the back, f**** up the bag, blocks you and your girls without warning, but on social media acts like y’all still kool so her won’t lose his IG following … Me and Hazel be just like Jeezy and Jeannie.”
He added the hashtag “Tim had nothing to do with it,” hinting that he agreed with Tim’s version of events rather than his brother’s.
